The MQ! Innovation Summit encourages innovators in mobility to come together and inspire and collaborate again this year. During the two-day event, expert speakers will take the stage to share their ideas and visions. In between talks there will be workspaces where participants can put the future of mobility in motion. But what exactly are the topics and what highlights are to be expected? Here you can find out all you need to know.

Day 1: A deeper look into the Chinese market

On December 4th, after arrival and a short introduction from Richard Robinson, Gaby-Luise Wüst will kick-off the event with her keynote speech. Afterwards, participants will get more detailed information about upcoming workspaces before Peggy Liu takes the stage to explain how a shift to a more sustainable China is possible for the future. Workspace registration will open in the late afternoon. Shortly thereafter, the first round of workspaces will begin along with a panel discussion. In the evening, Derek Haoyang Li will talk about artificial intelligence on and off the street. The day’s final talk will be from Caritta Seppä and Dr. Rüdiger Recknagel on the topic of sustainability. The day’s finale will be a performance from DJ Fab D Verse.

Day 2: What will the future bring and how can it be shaped?

Richard Robinson and Dr. Kai-Fu Lee know better than anyone how startups and companies can succeed in China. Their insights and unique perspectives will be covered in the day’s first talks, ensuring that day two will start with bang. Following, Dr. Patrick Kramer will make things more “personal” with his presentation. As a bio-hacker, Dr. Kramer combines biological and technical aspects to create completely new possibilities. This talk will be followed by two workspace rounds, which are linked, to the Audi Innovation Lab Finals. The afternoon speeches by Daizong Liu and Boris Meiners will empower participants to reimagine the sustainable design of cities.

Enough room for creativity and relaxation

On both days, smaller breaks lighten the schedule — making it possible for participants to network with others or take a breather. There will also be time for refreshment with coffee and meals. See the full agenda here.
